TGIF! What a long week. I was excited to come home tonight, cook a nice dinner, and relax. The boys wanted sweet potatoes and I wanted to chop up our last squash from the garden. We added baked chicken and we called it dinner.
I normally do sweet potato medallions. I chop them (skins on) and toss them into a Ziploc bag with olive oil, salt and pepper. I give it a good shake and squish. Then I spread them on a tray and bake them for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. Today I did something a bit different. I sprinkled them with cinnamon. Yum! The boys love them dipped in ketchup.
Nice and crispy. Then I sautéed the squash in some olive oil with some Seasoning Salt that I got from Tastefully Simple. I love this stuff….so versatile.
I cooked them until they were mushy. The boys tried them, but that’s where it stopped. Oh well, one day! More for Andy and I. While I cooked, the boys played cowboys and truck drivers. Apparently times have changed.
Eventually dinner was ready. My plate looked like this.
I ate most of this…I left 1/3 of the chicken. I was listening to my hunger…plus, I knew we were planning on a treat later.
Enter Blondies. I made the recipe that Jenna posted a few days ago. Hello sugar and butter!
The boys helped.
Occasionally I’ve have to wrestle a cooking utensil away. Who invited Buzz Lightyear? Why did I spend so much money on Halloween costumes. Who knew we had all the accessories in our kitchen?
Eventually the buzzer went off, the boys came running, and I cut these babies.
Jenna was so right. These are amazing. Super sweet and super chewy. The boys dove in and demolished this faster than I could snap a picture. I really like the simple and short ingredient list.
Thanks Jenna! Great recipe!
